Will the Queen skip Charles?

#1
On the radio today, I heard a discussion about why the Queen was still on the throne. One of the thoughts was that she thinks Charles is unfit to be King and is waiting for William to get to an age where he could take over, cutting Charles out of the picture.

Any truth or utter b*llox? And in the grand scheme of things, does it really matter who sits on the throne anymore?

i don't think it will happen as the rules of sucession had to be followed unless Charles abdicate the throne in favour of William.
i think Charles would like to have a bash at it, so i think many of us will still be in line for a jubillee medal or two before a Coronation Medal is due.
i don't see the queen going in quick order just yet i would say she will be around for another 20+ years her mum lived to be 100!

Utter bollocks of course. Her Majesty will remain monarch until the day she dies (unless Big Brother Blair evicts her to a chav council estate first)
Next in succession is His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales.
Next question?

I could be wrong here but,

If Charles were to say peg it before the Queen then doesnt the link to wills and harry die too?

I thought William can only be King if he succeeds Charles. If Charles does not make King then the right of succesion goes to the Anne as the 2nd child of the Queen ??

Not sure but thats how I look at it??

Does she have the right to name a successor or does it have to follow the line of succession?

Good point Disco, how does that work?

As Sid wrote the Queen does not retire, She dies, and next in line (Charles) takes over.

Succession is regulated by the Act of Settlement (1701)

THE Queen has no power to change the Act of Settlement . Parliament could change it in theory, but it would take a brave govenment to try it.

Only other options open under the Act of Settlement is if the Queen becomes to senile to carry on, Then Charles becomes Prince Regent and help mum out, or he abdicates in favour of his son (Which I doubt he will do)

To change it in any other way would lead to the end of the Monarchy, and William never becomes King...

If Charles were to say peg it before the Queen then doesnt the link to wills and harry die too?
No the line of succession would not change. Even if Charles dies it then goes to William then Harry until William has an Heir himself. Then line goes to Andrew and his Heirs, then to Edward and his Heirs, before Ann even has a look in. (Succession follows the Male Blood Line first)

mm i hadn't thought of that.
King Edward VIII only lasted less than a year before he had to abdicate in order to marry Wallace Simpson, his BROTHER took over the throne as King George VI and his daughter took over the throne, however Edward didn't have any kids so that theory hasn't been tested.

I don't want to make it too obvious about how I feel on this thorny issue, but here goes:

I wish someone would take a tyre iron to the jug-eared, half-witted c-unt.

Was that a party political broadcast for the Liarbour party, AFKAC?

With this govn, the Royals are the only bit of history we have left.

Put it this way The Monarchy and Aristocracy are two things we have,
and the Yanks would like more off!

HM the Queen & Co are also very big cash earners for the country on the tourism front.

Long Live The Queen

Tony as Le President I do not want. and since when was his wife 'First Lady' ?

Long Live The Queen
And they're also big earners, as surplus income from the Crown Estates is "voluntarily" donated to Grasping Gordy. Whenever the lefties bitch about the Royal List running to x million, they always forget to mention that the Crown Estates rents run to y million, where x<y... In 03/04, the Royal List ran to 7.9M, the revenue surplus paid to the Treasury came to a whopping 176.9M, giving Gordy 169M for free... http://www.royal.gov.uk/output/Page361.asp

(toasts) The Queen... But Not Her Government

The only time the monk fish/David Coulthard/Kryton lookalike was first lady was when she appeared in a lesser known Jap skin flick called 'Bukkake! A game for all the family'. I was given the photos by a 'source in Tokyo'.

Call me an old traditionalist, but shouldn't the monarch be the ruler of the country. Shouldn't she decide who succeeds her? And even if her son has been a naughty boy compared to old standards, it's the 21st century. What mother would deny her son the rule of a kingdom.

Long live the queen *lifts high a glass of port*

As for old post box mouth. This isn't America. She can kiss my ARRSE!

"Other than living at No 10 Downing Street as Britain's first lady, Blair practises under her maiden name as a queen's counsel with London's Matrix Chambers law firm... Blair gets her power both from her own work and from that of her husband."
This to me is far worse than the idea of Charles as King. I think he will do OK

*Toast* The Queen and her Rightful Heirs. hic

meat, as an old traditionalist, you will be aware that Her Majesty is almost as much a servant of the country as we are. Long may it remain. Although she gets a slightly better married quarter.

I’m all for (read my previous posts on the subject ref Monarchy rule) the old school of the bearer of the throne having power over all in the nation. Parliament (that means all who are members, not just the Jack boot bully boys who happen to have seduced the Sun reader types into popping a cross next to the free scratch card in the tabloid), do have a powerful say and I’m sure it will not be long before the subject of attempting to reduce the profile of the Royal Family to chavness. After all, this present bunch of social workers with fewer qualifications than Joey Deacon has achieved the following;

Asylum seeker population to the extent that I am now a minority with fewer rights than a small Shrubbery in Auchnacloy

The ban of smoking everywhere except a small garden shed 12 miles outside the capital of The Orkney islands.

The ban of hunting vermin. I.e. that cunning old fox, fabled for years as the sly one. (As well as Hare coursing, Deer hunting and fly swatting). As an aside, when the poultry farmers, sheep farmers and all the other yokel types who actually had no say in the matter start complaining that the fox population is getting out of control and decimating their stocks, will the govn subsidise them?

Allowing members of a known terrorist organisation into Parliament. (Those good ole boys Jerry and Martin).

The abject abuse of ministers 'expenses'.

Lying, lying and lying then allowing the accused back into the leadership.

PM scandal of aiding and abetting a known crim, attachment to some very dodgy property investments.

Joining in on a 'war' that makes Vietnam look like an open and shut case.

More U turns on pre election promises than a very lost old lady looking for the town of 'Ausfahrt' in das Vaterland.

Stripping basic 'English values' to the extent that the word 'English' in the The Concise Oxford English Dictionary now reads;
'noun the third language of England, now used in many varieties throughout Richmond, Kensington and Worksop.

• adjective relating to England (pre 1997. Also known as a small state to the East of USA).

— DERIVATIVES Englishness noun. historic, rarely used and banned

Minorities becoming majorities and vice versa.

UnPCness becoming an arrestable offence (safe though as we don’t actually have a police force anymore).

Less armed forces (officially the Army is now a 'militia' due to the standing strength being below 100,000) with 10x the commitments than we had when Churchill was boss man.

A national health service that makes a moderalty equipped boy scout look like a brain surgeon.

An education service that makes an autistic child look like the science council from Oxbridge.

Members of certain despicable sexual practices becoming almost normal members of society.

And the icing on the cake, all members of the present govn make my f*ckin skin crawl.

The Windsor family has its faults, mainly unsavoury shagging habits but they pale into insignificance compared to his holiness, bliar.

Do us a favour Betty and 5hitcan this bunch of self gratificating retards. Someone who knew personally the likes of Churchill should invite Bliar and Square head to the palace and tell them they have fcuked her country beyond recognition and could they please leave via the tradesmans exit. En route, Phil the Greek should give his real opinion on what he thinks of them too.

I thought he didn't actually have to abdicate, he did because it was the best thing for him to do.

Edward VIII had no children anyone admitted to. :lol:

As I understand it.. Mrs. Blair suffers from PMS - Prime Minister Syndrome...

As for Chuck..he seems to be following in the footsteps of his great ancestor.. Edward...Eddie had to wait out his Mum, Victoria, for a sh*tload of years, during which time he picked up a few ' unsavoury ' habits [ gluttony, excessive drinking and smoking, spending lavishly from the public purse in idle pursuits and boinking the rich and downtrodden with equal vigour ]...

While under considerable more scrutiny and less able to enjoy the ' lifestyle ' with the same public profile as his ancestor,Chuck seems to have acquired the ' taste ' for kingship's trappings..though f**king a horse and calling her Camilla seems a bit excessive...
